Bilateral talks between US and North Korean officials in Geneva last weekend had led to a "series of agreements," China's official Xinhua news agency quoted a North Korean statement as saying in Pyongyang.

North Korea agreed at the Geneva talks to dismantle all facilities at its main Yongbyon complex by the end of 2007, the agency quoted a North Korean foreign ministry statement as saying.
